Hello...my wireless x4650 does connect just fine to my router. But when I ran the install cd, it said that the connection failed. After some research, it seems that the correct port is not in the printer properties, but I cannot seem to add it. The only port that works is the USB port, but I wanted it for the wireless ability. It will print wireless if I connect it to the "print server" wireless connection, but that is not the same as my actual network.

Re: No wireless printer port for lexmark x4650
Your firewall for the wireless is blocking the port. Go into your firewall settings and add the port from the printer to bypass the router. What operating system do you have? It should be in Control Panel under Security Center.

Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X4650 printer driver on your computer. Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Just follow the instructions on your computer screen.
Why would you ever, ever use the CD a thing came with to install drivers? The ones online at the maker's sites (or service site) are, bar few, much better choices. Outside of that, if they're both 802.11g, they'll both have sync buttons so you can just hit the one on the router, then the printer, push printer buttons in an affirming way, then go to your laptop and print the queue (or backlog, or whatever.)
You will need to use the Lexmark X4650 driver for Windows 7 64-bit from the Lexmark website. First, uninstall the existing driver from your pc. Go to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark4600 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Reboot your pc when prompted.
To reinstall, click on this link Lexmark X4650 Driver for Windows 7 64-bit. Download, execute the file and follow the instructions on the software.
I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.
get t the wireless card of the printer ..and reconnect it in the actual conditions of the router ..just open the card ..and scan for network ..when you find it ..connect ...and insert the network password if it has the security activated..Practically connect the printer again like you connect a wireless laptop .. If the connection is made to one of the ports of the router ..by cable ..than open the lan card in the printer and insert the values corespondent to the position in the port .. or put it to automatically (obtain an IP address automatically ) if the router supports it ..and it is not necesarry to insert the addresses a manually ....if it is ..get to the other option ..use the following Ip address ..and insert the values like in the computer that connects in the near by port ..only at the IP address insert the last digit with one unit more than the port near it ..like thi s.. if the printer is in the 4th port ..and the computer near it in 3rd has the Ip address 192.168.1 4..the printer will became ..192.168.1.5 (they are always with one digit more..cause the router is 1..the rest since the port one are from 2...3..and so on ..
I would take that printer back. I do not know which store you bought it from, but from my troubleshooting experience rule out that it is in fact not the printer. Another one taken through the same paces will tell you that. Then you know that it is something outside that printer or some question or parameter not answered right during the installation process. Good luck and God bless.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
